On This Episode:

During our visit to the NCANA meeting last fall, we had the opportunity to host a live podcast about lobbying for your state association and we had the pleasure of bringing NCANA lobbyists Patrick Ballantine and Tracy Kimbrell onto the panel with us.

Both of them have been tremendous assets to our association because of their passion for lobbying. We explored that role to find out what skills it takes, how to utilize a lobbyist, and what you should expect from them.  

In this episode, you’ll get to hear our live podcast taping from the event and the great discussion we had about what lobbyists mean to our profession.

Here are some of the things you’ll learn on this show:

  • Background on our guests today and how they got into lobbying for the NCANA. [2:38]
  • What qualities does a legislator look for in a lobbyist? [7:09]
  • What is the ultimate goal of lobbying? [9:50]
  • How should the lobbyist interact with the organization? [15:49]
  • How do you keep different groups and issues separated? [22:52]
  • The importance of Lobby Days. [39:20]
  • How can you evaluate the work your lobbyist is doing? [45:04]

To me this is the best area of law, to be able to advocate for good public policy which ends up having broad-based impact on lots of people’s lives. It’s an honor to be a part of the process and represent the NCANA.

I started listening to this podcast religiously early on in my CRNA journey, a year before applying to CRNA school. The content in this podcast was one of my most helpful resources for getting into my first choice school, Wake Forest! It has also been a huge motivator for getting involved with the AANA now and throughout my career. I highly recommend this podcast to every prospective CRNA I meet.
